Check out PreachersNSneakers!

❝ A 29-year-old man named Tyler started an Instagram account two weeks ago that spawned from a joke he shared with friends. The account PreachersNSneakers has now become a place of both celebration and controversy over pastor influencers and their expensive shoes.

The Instagram account features pastors and other church leaders who have large followings on social media, screenshots of the shoes they wear, and the shoes’ price tags.

❝ The account has drawn all kinds of comments and discussions, and of this writing has more than 20,000 followers. “Registered Flex Offenders,” some joke, while others are interpreting the account’s message very seriously…

The creator, Tyler (ha ha), told BuzzFeed News the commentary he’s inspiring was intentional. However, he said it’s become “pretty intense” pretty quickly, and unexpected.

Check it out. Not that I’m surprised at the general response to hypocrite preachers who preach the gospel of a barefoot revolutionary – while wearing sneakers costing 3 or 4 figures.

Thanks, Martyn

Nielsen resigns as Homeland Security head – NO LOSS, just a symptom of White House incompetence


Jonathan Ernst/Reuters

❝ Kirstjen Nielsen, the homeland security secretary who has been the public face of some of the Trump administration’s most contentious policies, has resigned…

According to CBS News, which first reported the news of Nielsen’s impending resignation, her departure is yet another victory for Stephen Miller, the far-right senior adviser in the White House who has consistently steered the president in a hardline direction on immigration…

❝ Nielsen had a very rough ride as the fall guy for Trump’s hardline immigration policy. But given the controversial policies that she consistently championed, there were few expressions of sorrow for her on Sunday night.

A former DHS senior official, Juliette Kayyem, tweeted: “Nielsen is without an agency, and Administration – and public sympathy.”

One of the primary creeps who designed family separations as part of Border Patrol procedure Nielsen deserves little more than contempt. Her only beef with our fake president is that she feels his inhumane and bigoted policies can be made “legal” and that’s what she preferred to cover her participation.
